Greetings from Yellowstone!While it's 107 degrees back home in Texas, it's a brisk 53 degrees up here in Montana today, and I am really enjoying the cool weather.This has certainly been a dream trip for us. It is one of those things you talk about doing your whole life but never make the time to do. Sometimes I still can't believe I am out here doing this while I have a new album out. Albums are like kids; they take time and focus to flourish. I know that well, but all I have done my whole life is put out album after album. There has never been time in the cycle to do something like this.It's strange- I have traveled my whole life, all over the world. However, I worked so hard the whole time, waking early and doing press all day until I walked onstage, that I never got to see any of the city or country I was visiting. Even here in the states, I had already been to all the towns we have been to on our motorcycles, but I never got to explore! So that's what we are doing- no agenda, no work, just exploring this country of ours, and maybe we will make it to Europe to ride next. If we do ride our motorcycles through Europe, I promise to do a few shows along the way! To read more about this leg of my trip and to see some pics, just go click here!xxj
